An unbelievable alliance of international hardcore powers (a Yankee, a Swede, and three Englishmen walk into a bar…) yields some ragingly brutal hardcore punk. The influences are quite obviously that of classic American staples (Negative Approach, SSD, Cro-Mags) but there is also a hint of later-period Voorhees belligerence staring you right in the eyes. Try as many may, few can succeed in delivering a full-length’s worth of pure hardcore delight such as Sectarian Violence effortlessly do with repeated blunt force blows to the heads of timid hardcore wusses. I listened to this over and over and kept looking over my shoulder to make sure no one was going to sucker punch me in the neck. Not recommended for Touché Amoré fans: get da fuck outta here with that shit!
